Whether or not new Norwich City boss Chris Hughton fancies giving Chris Martin another go at the Premier League, it seems the striker is still wanted elsewhere.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

The 23-year-old academy product impressed with seven goals in 28 appearances at Championship side Crystal Palace last season – and This is Croydon Today have suggested Eagles boss Dougie Freedman would like the player at his disposal for the new campaign.

Palace are reportedly yet to make contact with the Canaries but apparently plan to do so during the summer, weighing up whether another loan with the option to make it permanent at the end of next season would be worth pursuing.

Martin made four Premier League appearances at the start of last season for City – and there could be one more familiar face waiting at Selhurst Park should he make the move.

Freedman as finally admitted his interest in long-time reported target Aaron Wilbraham, after the 32-year-old front man was released by Norwich at the end of last season.

No deal has been done yet, with Freedman saying it is “early doors” in terms of coming to any agreement for the popular ex-City striker.

What may be more pressing for when Hughton settles in at Carrow Road is bringing new faces in.

Centre-back Curtis Davies remains ever-present in the speculation – and there are suggestions Hughton has enquired about his availability from Birmingham City, where the pair worked together last season.

The 27-year-old defender still has two years to run on his current deal, which was signed in January 2011 when Davies joined the then-top flight club – and wages as well as the player’s fee may require some negotiation.

Free agent Keith Andrews remains another name mentioned in dispatches, and the Republic of Ireland midfielder may now get the chance to think about his future given their Euro 2012 exit after defeat to Spain on Thursday. The 31-year-old, who spent some of last season on loan at Ipswich in the Championship, was released by West Bromwich Albion at the start of the month.

Another name doing the rounds is that of young Watford defender Adrian Mariappa, with the 25-year-old starting the last year of his contract. Premier League new boys Reading had a £2m turned down – according to the Daily Star, at least.

One of Hughton’s other attempts at recruitment could be scuppered by his predecessor – this time, thanks to the Daily Mail.

The paper believes Paul Lambert will win the race to sign Kyle Naughton, taking the 23-year-old right-back from Tottenham to Aston Villa for £4m deal despite City’s continued interest. Naughton was superb for Norwich during his season-long loan from Spurs last term. Lambert also wanted to sign him permanently at Carrow Road.

However, Harry Redknapp’s exit from White Hart Lane might leave that particular move under a cloud.

Lambert’s Villa wish list is no doubt one City fans will be wary of – and if The Mirror are to be believed, it will be a familiar one too.

The tabloid reckons young Spanish central defender Daniel Ayala, as well as wantaway captain Grant Holt remain prime targets.

Ayala, whose first season was ravaged by injury, signed a four-year deal when he joined from Liverpool in August – while Villa “are preparing a £5m bid” for Holt, with Lambert said to have £20m at his disposal for his summer rebuilding.

Lambert’s supposed list also contains Leeds winger Robert Snodgrass and Blackpool’s Matt Phillips – both players said to have been repeatedly targeted by Lambert during his reign at Carrow Road.

Wrt Mcleish, all Villa fans never wanted and will not be missed. The decision to weild the axe had already been made before we played you, and to lose was just the icing on the cake. Our management were culpable of the appointment but applauded for this one, and Lambert is seen as great potential. Besiktas who are deemed to be the next victim of the ginger one's boring tenure are already protesting about the prospect. You lot should really get over this Lambert scenario from your comments, and just move on.

  • Interestingly, with all the rumours that have been going around over the past few weeks, nothing has been confirmed about Culverhouse and Karsa leaving. Neither has there been any mention of a City player (other than Holt of course) wanting to join up with Lambert. So, in my book no news is good news for our wonderful team. And quite honestly, I don't want to hear anymore about Lambo either. We have Chris Hughton now and that in itself excites me. Onward and upward guys!!!

Shockingly dumped by Mike (C)ashley, but Pardew did well to get them into 5th place last season. Thing is, Villa have been on the slide ever since O`Neill (Lambert`s role model) walked out. Your new guy is good at fixing car crashes, he did it for us big-time. So you`re happy with your new manager and we`re delighted with ours. Hughton is clearly good at dealing with car crashes too; he`s done his share. This time he has a vehicle in perfect working order. Deservedly so.

  • Second Season Syndrome? QPR, perhaps. Or did they sort of have it, prematurely, last season? No Norwich fan doubts that just staying up will be a huge achievement again. On a pessimistic day, I think "Just who CAN we finish above??". The 3 promoted teams look strong and some cash is being splashed already. QPR must improve, surely, once Sparky has sorted out (or dumped) his inherited idiot. Of the others that finished beneath us last year, Stoke are bound to be solid, with no European commitment to strain their resources. Sunderland and Villa should improve, with the O`Neill clones in charge. Wigan finished strongly but will they lose Martinez? On the other hand, they might all be wondering how on earth they could finish above US! Of those just above us, Swansea lost their manager too, as have West Brom. So a lot of changes have taken place. Only time will tell. Looking forward to an exciting season. I predicted City`s 47 points last season and Holty to be top scorer with 14. He got 15, thanks to Villa`s defence (and his shoulder) on the last day. I`m retracting next year`s prediction until the dust has settled. It was 52 points! OTBC.

  • With scouting operations at Villa being run by Glenn Roeder, it's no surprise that Lambert is looking at his own targets: Players he had at City and those on his City transfer target list. It's inevitable that some players will follow a manager to his new club, but I'm also sure that Hughton can find equally effective replacements.

  • As a point of fact, Naughton was heading back to Spurs until he learned that Lupa Trembla had already detonated that contract and was heading for an opportunity in Outer Mongolia, via Morecambe. The agreement there was put on hold while Gorbalschev considered an offer from another Galaxy. He`ll get there in the end. Nobody lives forever. Even him. I`ll see you, Jimmy.

  • In my comments, I said that 98% of Norwich fans were pleased with Hughton`s appointment. I am among that 98%. I believe he is the right man for the club at this time, bar none. I am very optimistic. Like many NCFC supporters, I always expected PL to leave, just a tad surprised and disappointed he lacked the courage to consolidate his achievements WITH the club, preferring to cash in his personal stock while it was high. He didn`t do all that stuff on his own, you know; other key operators were kept firmly in his shadow. He`ll be ideal for Villa, probably turn them round up to a point. That`s what he does. But if the fans get on his back, he`ll get riled. He scarcely received a whisper of criticism while at Carrow Road but, boy, did he get cross if there was even a hint of a whisper. Btw, I hope you`re not `Gingerist`. Test:- do you like Gary Megson? ;-)

  • I think Chris Hughton`s decision to join Norwich was based largely on that it was the right job for him and he actually wanted it. As a challenge, rather than purely as a clinical career move. I expect, with his humility and realism, he would have ruled himself out of Spurs contention, and we know cross-recruitment `twixt Villa & The Blues does not work. Don`t we? So he and AV would have had a mutual ruling out anyway. I have a very good feeling about his appointment and, in hindsight, am delighted it has worked out this way. One day he may well move on, hopefully with no rancour. He seems to have the warmth of personality to ensure that does not happen to him. The one-way love affair between Norwich fans and Chris Hughton`s predecessor is over.The Black Watch has ended; let the sun shine in. ;-)

Whether his move to AV works out for him, we've now got a highly capable manager with the added bonus of charm. Where there's competition in the transer market, I wouldn't be surprised if Chris Hughton's personality counts for a lot on its own. Not sure about the assessment of the situation with Kyle Naughton: Both ends of that agreement (Lambert and Redknapp) have moved on from their respective clubs so I can't see how it could be 'under a cloud' as such.

If you do the math and average out over five seasons(poss not Newcastle) these are the two tiers at the top of English football. Really can't see Lambert at the 1st tier yet. And if PL does move on in a few years and has been successful with our normal challenge for Europe... to one of the above top tier I will just like many other Villa fans will say "Well done, you have got us back to our normal expected position in the League." And then we go an find a new manager to sustain what PL has re-achieved.

He will catch up on players, contracts, everything he needs to know and take this team on to the next level. There will not be a mass exodus and all this rubbish of Naughton going to Villa is paper talk. If and when he is available and City bid for him whether there is another manager here is irrelevant, did he enjoy the area, the players, fans, etc., if so and the erms are right he will come.

In the meantime they are monitoring all your players and reporting into PL, as good agents always should. Both watching to see which players are throwing their teddy out of the pram and if Lambert thinks they are any good will bring them to Birmingham B6. If Karsa thinks Holt is kicking off he will report into PL that Villa can pick him up for 3m. What a win win situation for Aston Villa!

  • I don't think we're bigger than Villa, just it's not a big step up. We Norwich fans knew Lambert would go, but we always thought he'd go to a big club, so going to Villa was a bit of a surprise. But no one cares no more, I'm more than happy with CH as a replacement.

  • Reading the gossip, seems city is on the way to losing Ruddy as well to Lambert.. I hope they get a good price for him.. Why don't the city management just offer the whole team to him for a price???
